Having injured both of his ankles in the club’s defeat to Liverpool towards the end of January, Jose Mourinho originally stated that Kane looked set to spend a ‘few weeks’ on the touchlines while he recovered.
However, just 10 days later, the 58-year-old named the England captain in his starting XI to face West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
In reaction to this news, which was relayed on Twitter by Daily Hotspur, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many seeming to be furious with Mourinho for appearing to rush the centre-forward back.
Should Kane be starting?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to the news that Harry Kane is starting against West Bromwich Albion?
“Useless club. So if it makes the injury worse and he’s out for longer. Jose knows he’s hanging on by a thread”
“Rushed back again?”
“Actually risking Kane to save his job”
“Jeez, that’s desperate. I hope Jose isn’t rushing him back in too soon!”
“We are so regretting this”
All in all, it would appear that many of these Tottenham Hotspur fans are not happy with Mourinho’s decision to start Kane against West Brom, with some interpreting it as an attempt by the Portuguese manager to save his job, while others simply stated their belief that Spurs will regret the decision if the England international re-aggravates his injury.
